"DON'T WORRY CHAPPY, THERE'S
NO CHANCE OF THAT!" REALLY?
Hawthorn fan Sasha Lennon of the Footy Almanac reckons Geelong is NO CHANCE to play the Hawks when it counts. Think she's dreaming! Still this is what he had to say, I encourage a rubust debate over at thefootyalmanac.com.au
CATS COME FROM
BEHIND AND HOLD ON AGAINST HAWKS; TOUR DE FRANCE
GEELONG just held on against auld enemy Hawthorn at the MCG today, delighting this author and caravan who are awaiting to arrival of Cadel Evans and friends just outside St Claude, on Stage 7 of the Tour de France. From the reports we had texted in, the Cats struggled but just kept pace, and in the final quarter snatched the lead and led by 9 points with minutes to go. Hawthorn's dependable Brad Sewell gave us a scare as he reduced the margin to just three points but the Hawks' final shot of the game by Clinton Young only produced a behind, and the Cats hung on. Watch out for a Geelong jumper and Aussie/Scottish flags around 00:26 (Victorian time) tonight, and let us know if you see us. thecattery @ keldar.net (remove the spaces).
